In this lively book, Carolyn Mamchur provides a practical explanation of cognitive type theory and learning style that will help teachers meet the needs of others while also discovering their own strengths as teachers and colleagues.
In Part I, Mamchur introduces the theory of psychological type preferences developed by Carl Jung and discusses the importance of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator in identifying people's preferences for extraversion, introversion, sensing, intuition, thinking, feeling, judging, and perceiving. By looking at the eight preferences in the context of teaching and learning, she makes it easy for teachers to apply the theory in their own classrooms. A case sutdy accompanying the explanation of each preference shows how that preference typically influences classroom practice.
Part II takes a more intimate look at issues arising from the study and use of type theory, including the dangers of labeling. And the Appendix includes both a glossary and OPTIONS, an instrument for determining type preferences in adolescents.
Mamchur approaches her subject with humor, skill, and honesty. For teachers who want to better understand their students and their colleagues, this book is essential reading.
